mounting other hard drive?

Hi everyone
i have 3 hard drives
80G hda for windows
200G hdb for documents, i partition this one into 50G and 150G
20G hdd for linux hdd

fdisk -l says
hdb1 wat95 fat32(LBA)
hdb2 w95 ext'd (LBA)
hdb5 w95 fat32

i can mount my hda, hda1 perfectly but when i try hdb5 it complains

This is what i get when i try

mount -t auto /dev/hdb5 /mnt/d
mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb5 /mnt/d

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb5,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

and this is what i got after dmesg | tail

i810_rng: RNG not detected
hw_random: RNG not detected
pci_hotplug: PCI Hot Plug PCI Core version: 0.5
shpchp: shpc_init : shpc_cap_offset == 0
shpchp: shpc_init : shpc_cap_offset == 0
shpchp: Standard Hot Plug PCI Controller Driver version: 0.4
pci_hotplug: PCI Hot Plug PCI Core version: 0.5
pciehp: PCI Express Hot Plug Controller Driver version: 0.5
NTFS driver v1.1.22 [Flags: R/O MODULE]
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev 03:45.

Is there any way to get arround this?
Thank You

Take a look at /etc/fstab. How is hdb5 listed there? It should show you the device (/dev/hdb5), the mount point (/mnt/d), and the filesystem type (vfat). If all the information seems correct, you should be able to mount this way: mount /dev/hdb5 (without anything else. you would need to also give the mount point if you want to mount to someplace other than the mount point in /etc/fstab).

Sorry I missed the multipost. I don't usually answer those, so this post doesn't actually exist.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
